Our Top Selling Artists
North of England based Simon Wright is one of Yorkshire’s leading artists. From as early as he can remember, he has always been drawing and painting and it’s been his sole passion all his life. Simon’s work is in huge demand all across the country. His subjects cover a wide range, from African animals to local landscapes, all displaying a vivid colour palette.
After five years of study at Swansea and Coventry (Lanchester) Art Colleges, he graduated with a BA in Fine Art (Painting) and embarked on a career as an illustrator in publishing. His professional painting career has since focussed on realist landscape painting.
He has recently extended his style to encompass a more “colourist” approach.
The basis of his inspiration remains largely his love of light, colour and atmosphere in landscape. Having formerly spent many years living near the coast, he regularly returns to this subject matter.
As featured in the Yorkshire Post – David Smith is a highly talented and well established artist from Halifax, West Yorkshire.
His latest work is inspired by the great L. S. Lowry and features northern town scenes. Look out for the depictions of people at work and play – highly characterful figures, all different and beautifully painted.
Also of special note are the Huddersfield Town references.
David said “Being a Northerner with a few years under my belt I’ve observed a lot of changes over the past few decades.”
